Cornflour 1 Teaspoon
Fresh ginger slice 1 , finely shredded
Oil 1 Tablespoon
Chicken stock/Water 1 Tablespoon
Sugar 1/2 Teaspoon



1. Freeze the beef for 20 minutes, so that the meat hardens a little bit for easier cutting.

2. Cut the beef into thin slices 1 1/2 inches (3-5cm) long.

3. In a bowl put the beef, add salt, soy sauce, sherry or rice wine, sesame oil and cornflour, mix well, and let marinade for about 15 minutes.


4. In a wok or large frying-pan add oil and when it is very hot, add the beef with a slotted spoon and stir-fry it for about 2 minutes.

5. When the beef is cooked, remove it, wipe the wok or pan clean and re-heat it.

6. Add a little oil and stir-fry the ginger for a few seconds and then add the stock or water and sugar.

7. Put the beef in the pan and stir well.


8. Take out the beef a platter and serve hot with rice or vegetables.
